    "Tremendous App"

    July 13, 2013   |   By WGibson6481

    Version: The Unarchiver 3.8

    Pros

    This free app (without ads either!!) is better than any other decompression application. It put Stuffit (which was the Mac standard for more than a decade), WinZip, or any others.

    Cons

    I have to admit, I cannot think of any.

    "All in all i like it."

    April 14, 2013   |   By Surajo42

    Version: The Unarchiver 3.7

    Pros

    Generally it works fine

    Cons

    If you have more than 2 zip-files: with some it works fine, you can open all together. But there are zip-files, you have to open after the 2nd file each separately.

    In Preferences you cannot fix it, that it expands from the beginning in the same file. The first zip-file you have always to authorise.

    "The best program of the kind I have ever used."

    April 14, 2012   |   By Fire_Angel

    Version: The Unarchiver 3.1.1

    Pros

    Opens almost any compressed archive format you are ever likely to see.
    Fast; opens many Stuffit archives much faster than Stuffit Expander on my PowerMac.
    It just works, you hardly notice it after a while.

    Cons

    None that I know of.

    Summary

    If you download many archive files form the web and have a Mac, I think you should have The Unarchiver installed.

    "Bye-bye to PowerMacs"

    March 24, 2012   |   By UltraJoe

    Version: The Unarchiver 3.0

    Pros

    • Unarchives tons of different formats
    • Easy to use

    Cons

    • No longer supported on PowerMacs

    Summary

    The product description needs to be updated. The Unarchiver 3.0 is Intel-only. Very disappointed that .zipx support still leaves us PowerMac users behind.

    "please, some assistance"

    March 22, 2012   |   By masegorobin

    Version: The Unarchiver 2.7.1

    Pros

    I'm new to unarchiver, and I was happy to discover that it opened a huge zip file that I downloaded - with no fuss . . .

    Cons

    But, when I attempt to open a torrent file, Unarchiver asks for my password - problem is, I have not entered a password for Unarchiver . . . please inform me where I can find how to create/change my unarchiver password.

    thanks!

    "One of the Best Unarchiving Tools"

    December 01, 2011   |   By offthewaggoner

    Version: The Unarchiver 2.7.1

    Pros

    Easy to navigate; supports dozens of different formats; efficient, fast, reliable app; one of the best unarchiving tools on Mac OS X.

    Cons

    Can't find any fault in it.

    Summary

    The Unarchiver is one of those handful of programs I consider most essential for my system. It's truly a wonderful app that supports a variety of formats, from RAR to 7-zip to even old Amiga formats. It is able to handle practically all that you throw at it without any issues. It's practical, stable, and extremely easy to use. Great piece of software.
